Alexisonfire Premiere “Familiar Drugs” Music Video, Reveal Supporting Acts For Upcoming Shows

Alexisonfire have premiered a new video for their song “Familiar Drugs,” via Heavy Consequence. You can check that out below:

Guitarist Wade MacNeil commented:

“Everything came together really fast. [Director] Maxxis flew into Toronto with a crew of four people, found the plainest room he could and shot us on VHS tape and cellphones in a day. We were all really drawn to the vibe of old punk documentaries and videos from the ’70s and ’80s. We asked for a lo-fi, no bullshit performance video and that’s what he delivered.”

Maxxis added:

“I thought it would be cool to put a very normal woman in this tight space with Alexisonfire performing. She represents the withdrawn and disinterested sales force that is out there moving product to make a buck — regardless of what it is. She doesn’t give a shit about this band or their music — maybe she even thinks it’s stupid. There’s no passion there, so she stands miserably in the background. a nice metaphor for life i think.”

In other news, the group have also revealed the supporting acts for their upcoming shows:

06/01 London, UK – Alexandra Palace (with Chastity and Child’s Pose)
06/07 New York, NY – Terminal 5 (with Angel Du$t)
06/08 New York, NY – Terminal 5 (with Drug Church)
06/12 Los Angeles, CA – The Wiltern (with Drug Church)
06/13 Los Angeles, CA – The Wiltern (with The Dirty Nil)
06/15 Toronto, ON – Budweiser Stage (with Glassjaw & The Dirty Nil)
06/16 Toronto, ON – Budwesier Stage (with Quicksand and Moneen)
07/12 Ottawa, ON – RBC Bluesfest

Frontman George Pettit had the following to say about the openers:

“Angel Du$t – Someone once described Angel Du$t to me as, “if a hardcore band did the “There’s Something About Mary” soundtrack”. In other words, totally sick.

Chastity – The best thing to come out of the Durham region since…since…..hmmmm…

Child’s Pose– Awesome new post-punk band from the UK. Came highly recommended by Jonah Falco of Fucked Up.

Drug Church – Never met these guys but I love their music and I’m more than happy that bands that are much cooler than AOF are willing to play shows with us.

Glassjaw: AOF opened for them at the Opera House in Toronto in 2002. It took a couple years but we are returning the favour.

Moneen: Moneen is the Sigfried to Alexisonfire’s Roy…which one got attacked by the tiger? That one is Moneen.

Quicksand: Heros of ours from the days when they played interesting music on late night television. Post hardcore legends in the flesh.

The Dirty Nil – Luke once brought me bacon back when he worked at a butcher…bacon bribes is a good way to get an opening slot on an AOF show. True story.”
